This two-minute rocker is a nod to the New York new wave movement. "It's supposed to be my homage to that scene," Weller told The Sun. "I wrote it when I was on tour in America and the version you hear is the first one we did."
"I loved the Ramones and early Blondie," he continued. "I liked some of the New York Dolls' stuff. The Ramones were a big influence on The Jam because I liked those two minute or sometimes quicker songs... great melodies, great pop songs."
The riff-driven track is illuminated by slide guitar from John McClorey of The Strypes.
"St. Elmo's Fire (Man In Motion)" was not written for the movie, but for Rick Hanson, a wheelchair athlete whose 1985 "Man In Motion" tour logged 24,856 miles on his wheelchair in 34 countries while raising $26 million for spinal cord research.
